About The Swan on the River
Our pub is idyllically situated on the banks of the River Great Ouse at Littleport, you'll find us just north of the famous cathedral city of Ely.
We offer cask beers, including beers from local craft breweries, plus a range of draft and bottled lagers and excellent wines supplied by a local wine merchant..
So, if you're a fan of good old-fashioned pub grub or simply want a relaxing drink in a laid-back atmosphere and picturesque location, pay us a visit. (Our home made Scotch Egg is fantastic)!
Lovely lunchtime experience
Really excellent pub, great venue, lovely view from outside and nice and cool when we came inside :-D Food was outstanding, would recommend to anyone
Lovely pub on the river. Good food perfect setting. Would definitely go again
Beautiful pub right on the river, even a few boats stopping off for a quick pint. Lovely!
Overall the food was excellent however the slow roast pork belly we had was dry and overcooked and difficult to eat but it won't stop us from coming back.
Really enjoyed the food, atmosphere plus eating and drinking by the river. The staff were very friendly and professional.
Very nice meal.
Children’s meals and desserts could be cheaper
An excellent setting even in winter !! Service was very good as was the food.
Plenty of choice to please everyone, and a really nice meal, would definitely come back again.
We were made very welcome and enjoyed our meal. Hope tobe back with Slack Ma Girdle when the evenings are lighter
Very nice place. Excellent service
Lovely staff, very friendly and helpful. Had to wait a while for our food and lots of items werenot available due to a wedding and a christening taking place over the weekend but when it did arrive it was lovely
Have visited this pub a few times and was disappointed with the food this time. Everything was very overcooked (nuked in a microwave). The pub has recently added rooms and functions - has their attention been diverted from supplying decent pub food?
Staff and decor were lovely but I think the chef was having a bad day, the scampi was overcooked, the chips were cold and the peas were undercooked, could have done with more vegetarian options as had to order ham egg and chips without the ham for my son, my husband thought his burger was great though.
Very very slow to get any food (almost an hour!) and needed more drinks at one point but took ages to see a waiter to get any. Seemed understaffed for a Sunday lunchtime on Father's Day.
Great sitting out watching the boats having Sunday roast.Very good childrens roasts highly recommended
Lovely river view!
Lovely food and friendly service. Thank you.
Excelle food as always
The music was a little too loud when we first sat down and it was a touch cool but other than that the atmosphere was friendly. Service was very good - couldn't fault the staff at all. Limited range of cask ales was a little disappointing but the food was great.
Very pleasant lunch, good food and good service
delicious food, amazing dessert and great service, really impressed and will be back with more friends to enjoy know we know it is there!
